    Bought one of these over Labor Day rally when my battery capped out. Jump started it right up! Guy said they've used it to start a diesel truck!

    I have had mine about two years. I have jumped my chevy suburban with it, it took 4 trys to get a good connection. much easier the second time with 2 people. each start would use 25% of its capacity (but when it would loose connection it didn't use any). However it would not help start my car that has the battery in the trunk, but each try would still use 25% of the microstart.


    I just recently used it on the mastiff for the first time, spins it like you have a new battery and the spark plugs are out.

    I bought mine from Curtis / Wild Steed Works. His price was not the lowest; however I appreciate his support of this forum, and Big Dog owners in general. And the service was excellent. You won't be disappointed.

    Hey Dentdude I need a battery and Iv seen you post info on this one a few times. Could you tell any dif when you hit the starter button and does it still have that same thump. Would you buy it again? Its American made too I see. You got one so I guess just want your opinion on it.
    Thanks
